Way of Life: Furniture design by Pinch

November 19, 2009

Pinch is a British furniture brand founded in 2004 as the collaboration between husband and wife team Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon. Working from their studio /showroom in London, they aim to create graceful and iconic furniture and lighting that work for both elegant domestic spaces and stylish contract environments.

With a timeless quality, their pieces are designed and built to last, and work comfortably in a variety of situations, from concrete to country. Their approach to design combines a keen appreciation of artistic lines and form, absolute attention to detail and sensitivity to materials. After graduating Russel Pinch worked as Sir Terence Conran’s design assistant and became a senior product designer for the Conran Group and Oona joined Pinch full time in 2006. Russell also designs for a number of other retailers and brands including SCP, Ercol, Conran and Jamie Oliver’s JME home-ware range.

    I love the cabinet. The black paint on just the frame alone is perfect!

    Unrelated: do I recall correctly that you sell Nudie jeans for women (that, perhaps you have some discontinued pairs lying around)? I have to visit Vancouver again for a client, and MUST come in and grab a pair if you (still) have some kicking around.

    Thank you! (and, charming blog!).
